Café Lafayette Dinner Train

Two hours, 20 miles, and five courses are all it takes to transport guests back to the glory days of train travel when exceptional onboard dining was not a treat; it was a given. The Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train has been inspiring passengers with its route and cuisine for over 30 years, making its first run in 1989. Each year between early May and late October, the train winds through the spectacular Pemigewasset River Valley, presenting New Hampshire's White Mountains' immense beauty. The train moves at a leisurely pace of no more than 20 miles per hour, allowing travelers to take full advantage of the beauty that lies just outside the windows.

A four-star experience awaits from beginning to end on this journey. After boarding, guests are guided to their tables for four. An old-world travel experience in which guests conversed and got to know one another is cultivated by seating two couples together at the same table. The tables are cloaked in white cloths and feature gleaming silverware and china dishes. Patterned fans, individual chocolates, and colorful flowers grace each table. No detail is overlooked. The menu varies with the seasons, and many of the ingredients are sourced locally.

Period music fills the air, intoxicating smells waft through the train cars, and increasingly wondrous scenery appears at each mile marker along the track. A ride aboard the Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train is a delight for the senses and an experience that is not easily forgotten.
